        Cartes de Geographie Les plus Nouvelles et les plus Fideles

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. - Du VAL, Pierre (1619-1683). Cartes de Geographie Les plus Nouvelles et les plus fideles, Avecque leurs Divisions Regulieres, qui marquent les Bornes des Estats selon les derniers Traites de Paix. Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. Folio (17 x 12 2/8 inches). Engraved "Introduction", "Alphabet et Definition des Termes", "Table Generale de Geographie", "Les Tables de Geographie reduites en un Jeu de Cartes" and two sheets of a games related to the German Empire (uncoloured), and one of place-names for Les Conciles; engraved allegorical title-page, fine double-page engraved double-hemisphere world map "Planisphere, ou Carte Generale de Monde", "Carte Universelle du Commerce", 1677 (Shirley 465, second state), and 89 double-page engraved maps, all with original hand-colour in outline. 19th-century tree sheep backed marbled paper boards, the spine in six compartments, with five raised bands, the second with maroon morocco lettering-piece, the others decorated with fine gilt tools (extremities a little scuffed, small abrasion to lower cover). Provenance: with 19th-century marginal manuscript scholarly annotations to L'Amerique autrement le Nouveau et Indes Occidentales Du Val's EXTREMELY RARE "Cartes Geographiques" (Pastoureau Duval II), was the only folio atlas published by him. It was initially a collection of du Val's own maps, with those of other authors, published in 1654, then 1665 and 1667. In 1677 du Val published a uniform collection of his grand four-part wall, and folio maps, with the allegorical frontispiece as here: an architectural border supporting two putti unveiling a large globe to a world of assorted grandees; beneath the pillared arch repose a gentleman traveller, a merchant with this bags of salt and pepper, a scientist illuminating his own hand, and a curious woman tending to her animals. The maps in this example of the "Cartes Geographiques" are EXCEPTIONALLY FINE, bright, clean and attractive examples, with original hand-colouring in outline, and include 2 world maps, double-hemisphere and on a Mercaor projection, 7 of his spectacular wall maps, 3 sheets of games, that seem to be the equivalent of our "Risk", and 89 detailed double-page maps, each detailed, but also beautiful for their elegant simplicity. Pierre du Val was the nephew of the celebrated French cartographer Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville (1600-1667), mapmaker to Louis XIV, King of France, and responsible for sparking a renaissance in geographical endeavor in France, and laying the foundations for French domination in map production, initiating the so-called "French school of cartography," a school that was unprecedented in its attention to precision and scientific detail and which discarded much of the decorative embellishments of previous maps as irrelevant. Du Val adopted Sanson's geographical conceptions, confirming that the center of cartographic innovation had shifted from Holland to France. Du Val too was appointed to the position of ‘Geographe ordinaire’ to Louis XIV, and justifiably so. The maps include, in order: - World maps: Planisphere, ou Carte Generale de Monde (Duval II D), double-hemisphere world map, surrounded by diagrams showing compass points, winds and planetary orbits, a small terrestrial globe and an armillary sphere - Carte Universelle du Commerce, Carte Hidrographique, ou. Les Costes des 4 Parties du Monde, Avecque les Routes pour la Navigation des Indes, Occidentales et Orientales 1677 (Shirley 465, second state, first published in 1674), on Mercator’s projection showing the French and English routes to and from the East and West Indies, complete with galleons in full sail, the track of Le Maire across the Pacific, and an anonymous attempt to find a route to China and Japan through Hudson’s Bay in 1665. This map perpetuates the myth that California is an island, and displays some of the misunderstandings about the largely unexplored northwest coast of North America, such as the Straits of Anian. The lower half of the map is domina [Attributes: First Edition]

        Recueil d'expériences et d'observations sur le combat qui procede du mélange des corps. Sur les saveurs, sur les odeurs, sur le sang, sur le lait, &c. Tres-curieux & utile aux medecins & à ceux qui s'appliquent à la recherche de la nature, des qualitez & des proprietez de toutes sortes de corps.

      Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679. - Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679 ; 1 vol. in-12 (16 x 9 cm), (15), 262, (2) pp., 1 planche h.t., pleine basane de l'époque, coiffes endommagées, mors fendus en tête, très petit manque de cuir sur le plat supérieur, une page de garde blanche manquante, quelques soulignements et accolades (au crayon rouge dans les deux premiers textes), assez bon état. Édition originale d'un ouvrage exceptionnel, devenue très rare et recherchée. Ce volume comporte la traduction française de trois ouvrages d'éminents scientifiques du 17ème siècle ; chaque texte a sa propre page de titre. Le premier, intitulé Expériences sur le combat qui arrive du mélange de diverses liqueurs avec toutes sortes de corps (pp. 1-124) est la traduction du principal ouvrage de Nehemiah Grew dans le domaine de la chimie. Le deuxième ouvrage, intitulé Expériences sur les saveurs et sur les odeurs (pp. 125-220) est la traduction de la première monographie consacrée à la physiologie d'organes des sens, oeuvre de Robert Boyle. Le dernier ouvrage, Observations faites avec le microscope sur le sang et sur le lait (pp. 221-262), est sans doute le plus intéressant : A MILESTONE IN THE HISTORY OF HEMATOLOGY. Il correspond à la traduction de cinq articles d'Anthony van Leeuwenhoek, publiés pour les quatre premiers d'entre eux dans les "Philosophical Transactions" de la "Royal Society". L'un de ces quatre articles (cf. Garrison & Morton, 860) comporte la première description valable des globules rouges. "Les globules rouges entrevus probablement par Swammerdam et Malpighi, sont vraiment découverts et remarquablement décrits par Leewenhoek." (J.Bernard). Leeuwenhoek montre aussi que les hématies se déforment pour pouvoir passer dans les capillaires. Ces observations constituent l'acte de naissance de l'hémorrhéologie. Le cinquième article, qui ne semble pas avoir été publié dans les Philosqophical Transactions et qui ne figure pas dans la liste des publications de l'auteur établie par Clifford Dobell, est peut-être publié ici pour la première fois. Leewenhoek y décrit en particulier la déformabilité et l'agglutination des hématies. Il faut aussi noter que ces cinq articles font partie des 27 premières lettres de l'auteur, qui n'ont pas été publiées dans ses oeuvres complètes.

Die Bewunderung für Lanas Idee verführte ihn sogar dazu, an der Universität Wittenberg im Jahre 1674 Vorträge über sie zu halten, ohne dabei Lanas Namen zu nennen. Durch einen seiner Schüler namens Frescheur ließ er eine Dissertation 'De artificio navigandi per aerem' verfassen, die sich fast wörtlich mit dem 6.

Very good copy. FIRST EDITION OF THE MOST EXPRESSIVE AND VISUALLY INTERESTING OF ALL WORKS ABOUT THE LORE RELATING TO THE TOWER OF BABEL, ADDING TO THIS ASSESSMENTS OF CERTAIN WONDERS OF THE WORLD, AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE STUDY OF LANGUAGES, ESPECIALLY OF EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS, AND ALSO RELATING THE TEXT TO THE BIBLICAL STORY OF THE INABILITY OF PEOPLE TO COMMUNICATE TOGETHER. Here is Kircher's encyclopedic work on the history of the construction of the Tower of Babel, his speculations regarding its height, location, etc. Much of the topographical and historical information was garnered from the author's studies and research in earlier texts. Included is the genealogical tree of Noah and his descendants. He also enters into a study of the comparison of languages, including Phoenician, Hebrew, Chaldean, Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopian, Elamite, Persian, Coptic, Armenian, Greek, and Latin. "In Kircher's Turris Babel, his reconstruction of the confusion of languages following Nimrod's act of architectural arrogance, he put forward a series of theories attempting to explain language change. These include migration, wars, colonization, and climate. Language change was generally viewed as a form of decline from the original and perfect language of Adams, which Kircher considered to be lost forever. Against this natural decline, humanist philological authority institutionalized its prescriptive claims to regulate language norms by establishing bodies such as the Accademia della Crusca and the Academie Française. Kircher's cure for the curse of Baroque Babel was at once more radical and knowingly impractical. By creating a new, written language, he offered to stop language change forever - to wrench language from history (and use) and give it to philosophy." - Wilding, p. 101. FULL DESCRIPTION ON REQUEST. PROVENANCE: Early ownership signature of: And. Glinde Sielns[?]. Bookplate of Leonhard Raaf, with his signature on page 159, bottom margin. Initials of "CK" at foot of both the half-title and title-page [minutely written]. Leonard Frederick Raaf [or Leonhard Fredrik Raaf] in Småland (1786-1872), born 18 September 1786 on the farm Tomestorp in Kisa parish, Ostergotland, died 9 June 1872 on Forsnas farm in Sund parish, Ostergotland County, was a Swedish writer, folklore collector, antiquarian, member of parliament, landowner and state auditor. He was taught at home and at the age of 16 he matriculated to Uppsala University, graduating in 1805. During his student years in Uppsala, he came in contact with representatives of Romanticism, such as Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom. He was employed at a government office in Stockholm, but continued his studies a few years, alternating with service in the war expedition. Raaf earned his PhD in 1807. He was extra ordinary clerk in the war expedition from 1805 to 1810. Raaf was also a politician, Member of Parliament (chivalry and nobility), 1809-10, 1840-41, 1850-51. He gave medieval manuscripts, the so-called LF Raafs Diplomatarium. Further, he collected folklore along with Arvid August Afzelius and published the "Swedish ancient folklore" 1834-42. As anthropologist and cultural historian, he published a work that is still considered important a five volume, study of the Ydre district in Ostergothland, 1856-75. In addition, he wrote a thesis on Swedish diplomacy, a guide for anyone who wants to devote himself to the study of Swedish medieval documents and letters. From Tomestorp he had moved to Milling Torp, from there to Bulsjo and finally, in 1843, to Forsnas - all farms in southern Ostergotland - where he had his home, until his death in 1872. During the first half of the 1800s his home was also the summer residence of the a large part of the then Swedish cultural elite, such as Gudmund Joran Adlerbethsgatan, Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom, Eric Drake, Joachim Nicolas Eggert, Daniel Georg Ekendahl, Lorenzo Hammarskold, Samuel Hedborn, Clas Livijn, Christian Molbech and Vilhelm Fredrik Palm Leaf, who lived with Raaf for shorter or longer periods. He became a member of the Royal Society for the issuance of manuscripts on Scandinavian history in 1828, the Royal Institute of Letters, History and Antiquities in 1829, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences 1861st Member of Geatish Society 1811th. For posterity, he is perhaps best known for his pronounced conservatism, and its opposition to the country's modernization. His grave can be found on the Forsnas farm. His sister Charlotta Eleonora Raaf (1785-1821) was married to Carl Ake Hammarskjold (1768-1848). Their grandson was Hjalmar Hammarskjold, who in turn was the father of Dag Hammarskjold.

        Prodromo gentilizio ovvero trattato delle armi ed insegne delle famiglie, preliminare alla Europa gentilizia

      a spese del Tinassi. Cm. 15,5, pp. (24) 560 (4) [prima carta (anteposta all'occhitetto) e ultima (postposta alla carta di errata) bianche e presenti]. Stupenda legatura coeva alle armi della famiglia Febei, in pieno marocchino rosso con ricchissime decorazioni in oro a dorso e piatti. Tagli dorati. Si segnala lo splendido cofanetto in marocchino rosso (interni in velluto e finestra in plastica simil-vetro trasparente) realizzato dalla prestigiosa legatoria milanese De Stefanis. Trascurabili e sporadiche arrosatture, peraltro magnifico esemplare ottimamente conservato. Antonio Stefano Cartari (1651-), giurista e poligrafo nativo di Orvieto, raggiunse la massima fama grazie agli studi di araldica. Così la voce C. (a cura di Amando Petrucci in D.B.I., volume 20) a proposito di quest'opera: "Egli individuò nell'araldica e nella sigillografia i campi di interesse che gli riuscivano più congeniali, e prese a raccogliere sia sigilli originali, sia impronte, sia infine descrizioni o disegni di stemmi di famiglie nobili. Nacque così in lui il progetto, vastissimo ed ambizioso, di un repertorio generale degli stemmi di tutte le famiglie nobili europee, disegnati e descritti accuratamente; e in pochi anni il C., con accanita opera di spoglio da fonti e da testi di ogni tipo, finì per raccogliere la riproduzione di oltre ventimila stemmi. Nel 1679 egli pubblicò il volume primo e preliminare della grande opera: Prodromo gentilizio overo trattato delle armi ed insegna delle famiglie, Roma 1679, dedicato a F. M. Febei, che consiste in un vero trattato teorico-pratico di araldica, preciso e conciso nella parte tecnica, basata, per confessione dell'autore, su fonti francesi, inattendibile e abborracciato nelle parti storiche; importante appare il glossario dei termini tecnici, nonché l'indicazione di metodo volta a privilegiare le fonti antiquarie, «monete, sigilli e medaglie» in confronto di quelle scritte". Copia unica, in quanto esemplare di dedica: le armi sono di Francesco Maria Febei (1616-1680), arcivescovo di Tarso e scrittore originario di un'antica famiglia ascritta al patriziato di Orvieto. Lo stesso Febei è il destinatario della dedicatoria di Cartari. Prima edizione. Così Piantanida (260): "Rara ediz. probab. orig. di questo trattato diviso in cinque libri (Spreti, Saggio di Bibliogr. araldica, p. 36)". Cfr. anche Iccu..

        Del suono de' tremori armonici e dell'udito. Trattati

      a spese di Nicolò Angelo Tinassi, 1679. Cm. 20, pp. (16) 330 (2). Con numerose ill. xilografiche n.t.; bei finalini e graziosi capilettera. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida; tagli spruzzati. Abile restauro al dorso. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685), storiografo dell'ordine dei Gesuiti nativo di Ferrara, si dedicò con autorevolezza anche agli studi scientifici e matematici. In questo importante trattato dedicato ai meccanismi di trasmissione del suono in natura e in musica, l'A. descrive i fenomeni fisici e gli aspetti psicologici legati alla percezione delle diverse tipologie di suono, donando per la prima volta alla musica il ruolo di scienza fisica autonoma e non subalterna alla matematica e alla geometria. L'opera è suddivisa in quattro distinti trattati: "Del somigliante diffondersi che fanno in certi lor movimenti l'aria e l'acqua"; "De' movimenti del suono"; "Del tremore armonico"; "Delle misture de' suoni". Rarissima prima edizione. Cfr. Iccu; Wellcome, II, p. 109; Gamba, 1775; Olschki, Choix, 6068..

Paper yellowing) (Note: Ad 1: The Danish anatomist and physician Caspar Bartholin, or Bartholinus (the Younger, or Secundus), 1655-1738, was the last of the famous Bartholin dynasty of scholars and physicians. In 1674, at the age of 19, he was appointed professor of philosophy. Following this appointment he travelled for his studies through Europe for three years. On his return to Copenhagen he began to teach physics. He also lectured on anatomy. Bartholin mainly published on anatomy and medicin. This book on the pipes and flutes of the ancients, which was first published in Rome in 1677 was a work of his youth. § The second far slimmer volume of 'De Ovariis', bound after 'De tibiis', is of far greater importance for the history of science, to be precise, medical science. In 1677, at that age of 22, Caspar Bartholin was the first to describe the Bartholin's glands in 'De ovariis mulierum' (Rome 1677). This Amsterdam edition of 1678 is the first reissue of that ground breaking treatise. See for the details and the importance of 'Bartholin's glands' Wikipedia. The book about musical instruments is rather common, but Bartholin's book on ovaries is rare. In Rare Book Hub we found only one copy, in 1979) (Collation: *12, A-R12, S6; A-C12, 5 folding plates, frontispiece, portrait on leaf *12 verso; 27 engraved text illustrations (of which 22 full page)) (Photographs on request) 500 gr

        Nouvelle relation de l'interieur du Serail du Grand Seigneur). Recueil de plusieurs relations et traitez singuliers & curieux.

      [Amsterdam], suivant la copie imprimée à Paris, 1679. - Small 8vo. (8), 564, (4) pp. With 2 folding engr. maps and 8 folding engr. plates; several woodcuts in the text. Wants the portrait found in some copies. Contemp. dark brown full calf with traces of oxydized giltstamping to spine and gilt leading edges. First Amsterdam reprint: Taviernier's description of the Ottoman Imperial Seraglio - his first published work, which had appeared separately as early as 1675 - here forms the final part of his "Recueil de plusieurs relations et traitez singuliers & curieux", an independent publication which was, from 1679 onwards, appended to the author's "Six voyages en Turquie, en Perse, et aux Indes" (thus ultimately forming that collection's third and final volume). It was this volume, containing Tavernier's studies in commercial politics, that made the author's travels widely known. The fine maps show Japan and Tonquin, the plates depict costumes, a theatre performance, temples, and various processions. A woodcut in the Seraglio section gives the Islamic profession of faith, the Shahada, in Arabic script. "Tavernier spent eleven months in Constantinople before setting out on his first journey. He joined a caravan for Persia in 1638 and, between 1643 and 1668, made six voyages to Persia, India, the East Indies and Japan. During his travels he amassed a large collection of diamonds and jewels. His successful commercial enterprise was recognised by Louis XIV and he was granted a patent of nobility for his contribution to the establishment of French trade in Asia. It was Tavernier who indicated the trade routes to the East and made it possible for others to follow him. According to Brunet, the 'Recueil' appears with all editions of the 'Six Voyages' printed after 1679" (Atabey). "It appears that much of his information on the Seraglio was obtained from two former employees of the Sultan, one a Frenchman, the other an Italian" (Blackmer). - Binding rubbed but tight; a tear to one map repaired. Slight browning throughout due to paper. A good copy. Graesse VI/2, 43. Goldsmiths 2283. Willems 1937. Atabey 1201. Cf. Cordier, BJ 393. Laures 525. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Terra Sancta sive Promissionis, olim Paletina, induo divisa regna, Israel, et Juda.

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Rome; date: (d)1679 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at centerfold; - size (in cm): 42 x 54; - description: Map shows Holly Land with a insert map showing Israel with Syria and Cyprus; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

        Histoire anathomique d'un enfant qui a demeuré vingt-cinq ans dans le ventre de sa mère avec des réflexions qui en expliquent tous les phénomènes

      Laurent d'Houry, Paris, 1679, in 16, de 43pp. 1 f. bl., ill. d'une gravure du foetus se dépl. (remontée et restaurée en marge sup.), demi-veau brun fin XIXe, qq. rares rousseurs. (ex-libris Dr. Charpentier) Edition originale qui reprend une publication antérieure du Dr. François Bayle (1622-1709) professeur à l'université de Toulouse, rapportant de façon précise l'observation clinique et l'autopsie d'une femme présentant un lithopédion depuis 25 ans. Historiquement la patiente âgée de 37 ans, sur le point d'accoucher, refusa l'aide d'une sage-femme qui avait la réputation d'une sorcière. Finalement elle n'accoucha pas, et eut de violentes douleurs deux mois après le terme puis continua à ressentir une gêne, parfois des douleurs, jusqu'à son décès à l'âge de 62 ans. Certains attribuèrent cette histoire clinique extraordinaire à une malédiction démoniaque, et l'autopsie de cette patiente suscita un grand émoi. Elle révéla, hors de la matrice, la présence "d'un corps dur comme de la pierre", semi-mobile, solidaire de l'épiploon et qui "fermoit un grand ulcère qui occupoit le fond de la matrice". Ce corps se révéla être un foetus mâle calcifié. Blegny évoque une rupture utérine au cours du travail. De longues discussions à ce sujet eurent lieu au cours des siècles suivants. Ce lithopédion fut finalement associé à une grossesse abdominale liée à une brèche utérine. ¶ Stofft H : Un lithopédion en 1678, Hist. des Sc. Médicales, 1986, 20, p. 267-285 : "Francois Bayle's observation of a lithopaedion, published in 1678, has given rise to discussions in the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, allowing us to follow the evolution of medical opinion on the physiology of human reproduction, the pathological anatomy, the aetiology, the pathogenesis and the surgery of abdominal pregnancies." - Dezeimeris I. p.416 "Le foetus, sorti de l'utérus par une rupture de cet organe près de l'insertion d'une des trompes, était contenu dans l'abdomen, et comme pétrifié." - Caillet n° 856 (Bayle).

About the author: Edward Leigh (1602-1671) was a versatile English lay writer, known particularly for his works on religious topics, and a politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1645 to 1648. He fought for the Parliamentary army in the English Civil War (From Wikipedia). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mercurio georgrafico

      In folio (mm 477x325). Frontespizio calcografico raffigurante Mercurio, Sansone, Europa, Asia, Africa ed America, pp. [4: Catalogo delle Tavole], 97 carte geografiche incise in rame su doppia pagina con i confini colorati a mano all'epoca. Piena bazzana coeva, dorso a sette nervi con ricchi fregi e titolo in oro (minimi restauri agl'angoli, qualche macchia e spellatura, cerniere lievemente aperte, ma ottimamente conservata). Al verso del titolo firma di appartenenza, in parte cassata: "Ad usum Presbiteri Joannis Beri". La stessa mano ha corretto la numerazione delle tavole nell'indice -l'estensore essendosi accorto che una delle carte relative ai Paesi Bassi è in realtà rilegata fuori posto-; ha numerato le mappe dalla 1 alla 50 conformemente alla numerazione da lui corretta nell'indice; infine ha integrato l'indice a stampa aggiungendo numero, titolo e data per le 12 mappe aggiuntive che non compaiono nell'indice a stampa, che si ferma alla carta 85. Titolo più corto del resto del volume nel margine esterno, fioriture sparse, lieve alone marginale alle ultime carte, ma ottima copia genuina. Importante raccolta di carte geografiche, curata dallo stampatore Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi in collaborazione con il cartografo del Duca di Modena Giacomo Cantelli. La collaborazione tra i due, cominciata nel 1679, durò fino alla morte del Cantelli, avvenuta nel 1695. Le singole carte geografiche sono datate dal 1669 al 1690. A parte alcune mappe firmate dai cartografi francesi Michael Antoine Baudrand, Guillaume Sanson, Nicholas Sanson e Augustin Lubin, la gran parte delle carte è opera del Cantelli. Tra gli incisori figurano i nomi di Jean Lhuillier, Francesco Donia, Vincenzo Mariotti ed altri. Il Mercurio geografico ebbe grande successo e continuò ad essere pubblicato, anche dopo la morte del Cantelli, fino a Settecento inoltrato con l'aggiunta di una seconda parte e di numerose nuove carte. Ogni esemplare dell'opera differisce dall'altro in quanto a numero di tavole. Essendo queste state prodotte nel corso di diversi anni ed essendo anche vendute singolarmente, il possessore del volume aveva la possibilità di aggiungere a suo piacimento le ultime uscite, come testimonia perfettamente questo volume che presenta 12 tavole aggiuntive rispetto alle 85 indicate nell'indice. Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\VEAE\005442; A. Bonazzi, Il Mercurio geografico: il gioco e la differenza, in: "Giacomo Cantelli: geografo del Serenissimo", Bologna, 1995, pp. 37-44 e 150-152; A.

        Del suono de' tremori armonici e dell'udito. Trattati.Roma, a spese di Nicolò Angelo Tinassi, 1679.

      Roma, a spese di Nicolò Angelo Tinassi 1679 - Cm. 20, pp. (16) 330 (2). Con numerose ill. xilografiche n.t.; bei finalini e graziosi capilettera. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida; tagli spruzzati. Abile restauro al dorso. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685), storiografo dell'ordine dei Gesuiti nativo di Ferrara, si dedicò con autorevolezza anche agli studi scientifici e matematici. In questo importante trattato dedicato ai meccanismi di trasmissione del suono in natura e in musica, l'A. descrive i fenomeni fisici e gli aspetti psicologici legati alla percezione delle diverse tipologie di suono, donando per la prima volta alla musica il ruolo di scienza fisica autonoma e non subalterna alla matematica e alla geometria. L'opera è suddivisa in quattro distinti trattati: "Del somigliante diffondersi che fanno in certi lor movimenti l'aria e l'acqua"; "De' movimenti del suono"; "Del tremore armonico"; "Delle misture de' suoni". Rarissima prima edizione. Cfr. Iccu; Wellcome, II, p. 109; Gamba, 1775; Olschki, Choix, 6068. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rev., Rectified in Sundry Mistakes, And Supplied with a Preface, Marginal Notes, Several Omissions, And Exact Tables, Both of the Special Matters, Great Officers, Speakers, Nobles, And Other Persons therein contained. London: Printed for William Leake, 1679. [xxxii], 716 (i.e. 588), [142] pp. Folio (11-1/2" x 7"). Contemporary reversed calf, recent period-style spine, blind rules and corner fleurons to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, hinges reinforced. Moderate rubbing and a few minor stains and scuffs to boards, heavier rubbing to board edges with wear to corners. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, some leaves have light foxing, recent marks in light pencil to a few leaves. $500. * Reissue of the first edition, 1657, the final version of this work. "In the seventeenth century the importance of the Parliament Rolls was so great that transcripts were made for private use, and published by private enterprise" (Holdsworth). The most important of these editions was produced by Prynne using a manuscript originally credited to Cotton. It is now believed to have been compiled by William and Robert Bowyer. It records the substance of Acts of Parliament and other particulars, that are not extant in print, among the statutes or the Parliament Rolls, and supplies the purpose of a useful index to the Rolls of Parliament. One of the most notable and colorful figures of the period, Prynne was a contentious, erudite Puritan attorney, legal antiquarian and prolific author. In 1660, he became the Keeper of Records in the Tower of London, a post he held until the end of his life. Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:423. English Short-Title Catalogue R473630.

        DE PAR LE ROY. EXTRAIT DES REGISTRES DU CONSEIL D'ESTAT

      [Paris, 1679. Broadside, 48 x 35.5 cm. Folded, large dampstain affecting top and bottom, else very good. This broadside is signed in print: "Saint Germain en Lay, 24 Oct. 1679...Colbert." One of the chronic problems faced by France was a shortage of shipping, which put the country at a disadvantage in dealing with the maritime powers of her neighbors, England and the Netherlands. To correct this, Colbert instructs (translated from the French): "In order to encourage his subjects in navigation and maritime commerce, the king decrees that anyone who builds a boat in the ports and harbors of the kingdom of more than 100 tons capacity will receive 100 sols per ton." There are instructions for the broadside to be posted at docks and mercantile exchanges so that no one can claim ignorance. Not in the NUC.

He is, perhaps, best remembered for his monumental work "A Display of Heraldry" which was first published in London in 1610. Born in 1565 (some date 1550) in the county of Herefordshire. This part of England is very close to the border with Wales and Guillim's ancestors were probably of Welsh extraction. He was educated at Brasenose College in Oxford University. In 1575 a John Guillim of Minsterworth married Frances Dennis, and raised a family of one boy, John, and three girls, Margaret, Frances, and Priscilla - unreliable source? The first record of his involvement with heraldry is the Earl Marshal's warrant, dated 23 February 1604, permitting him to bear the tabard of the Portsmouth Pursuivant Extraordinary. From Michaelmas 1613, he was receiving a salary from the College of Arms, though his official appointment as Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms in Ordinary was not made until 1618. The Display of Heraldry was written around 1610 and reprinted as early as 1611. There were seven further editions of the book following Guillim's death, with the last one being printed in 1724. Some historians have suggested that the original author of the Display of Heraldry was a clergyman named John Barkham who was unwilling to have the work published in his own name. Guillim's death is recorded as having occurred on 7 May 1621, probably at Minsterworth, although there is no record of his place of burial.Sir Ilay Campbell of Succoth (1734 - 1823) was a Scottish judge, was appointed Solicitor General for Scotland in 1783 and Lord Advocate in 1784. He became Member of Parliament for Glasgow Burghs in the same year. He was Lord President of the Court of Session and Lord Justice General from 1789 to 1808. In 1808, he was created a baronet. He also was Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow in 1799, and died in 1823 aged eighty-nine years.Source: Wikipedia
